And the Oscar goes to … Mark Hamill?
The most recent edition of the Academy Awards have come and gone, but J.J. Abrams has his eye to 2018 where he really does think the man behind Luke Skywalker should be up for the coveted prize in the best actor category.
At least that’s what he told the New York Daily News during the recent Oscar Wilde Awards in Los Angeles.
I think we all are going to be very upset if he does not win an Oscar, and no one more upset than Mark.
Sadly, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have not really looked too kindly to science-fiction and other geek stuff in the past – although getting nominated and winning is possible. Just ask the Lord of the Rings – except it took for the entire trilogy to be complete before The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King won best picture.
